GRANDFATHER'S PRAYER FOR TODAY.
My Creator, may I always retain my curiosity about all the mysteries that
life has to offer
"Our death is not an end if we can live on in our children and the younger
generation. For they are us; our bodies are only wilted leaves on the tree
"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a
miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
"The ideals which have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new
courage to face life cheerfully, have been kindness, beauty, and truth. The
trite subjects of human efforts, possessions, outward success, and luxury
have always seemed to me contemptible. "
"We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course,
powerful muscles, but no personality. "
"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own
reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the
mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvellous structure of reality. It
is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every
day. Never lose a holy curiosity."
"Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding. "
"The effort to get at the truth has to precede all other efforts."
"In the middle of every difficulty, lies opportunity. "
"Oh, Youth: Do you know that yours is not the first generation to yearn for
a life full of beauty and freedom? Do you know that all your ancestors felt
the same as you do and fell victim to trouble and hatred? Do you know also
that your fervent wishes can only find fulfillment if you succeed in
attaining a love and an understanding of people and animals, and plants, and
stars, so that every joy becomes your joy and every pain, your pain?"
"Look deep, deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better
"One should not pursue goals that are easily achieved. One must develop an
instinct for what one can just barely achieve through one's greatest efforts
"The most important human endeavour is the striving for morality in our
actions. Our inner balance and even our very existence depend on it. Only
morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to life."
"To become truly loving, find someone who truly loves. Empty yourself, and
let their love fill you. Then, keep not the love you have found to yourself.
For only in giving it away, will you always have it."
Every man stamps his value
On himself...man is made great
Or small by his sown will.
